Guam - The Guam Alliance for the Defense of the Unborn will hold a pro-life rally this weekend to bring awareness to the community and learn about the abortion landscape on Guam. Alliance member Kathy Sgro says with recent discussion in the community on the topic along with it being the holiday season, the rally couldn't be timelier.

"Whether you are for abortion or not, it's important to become informed and educated and that's the purpose for rally for life," Sgro said. "So with this being the advent of Christmas, various pro-life organizations got together and decided that it was would be an opportune time with the birth of Jesus Christ to celebrate life."

The rally will feature a variety of speakers discussing abortion statistics on Guam, medical perspectives and the legality of abortion. The group also plans to hold future town hall sessions on the issue. The event takes place Saturday at the Father Duenas Memorial School Phoenix Center from 9am to noon.
